Herkimer Elementary marked “Johnny Appleseed Day” at the end of September with a tasty guessing game for students.

A large bushel basket filled with apples was displayed in the front lobby. Each student cast a vote to guess how many apples the basket held.

The winners were:

  • Adelisa Covic, from Mr. Shepardon’s class, with a guess of 120.
  • Chase Allen, from Mrs. Spence’s class, with a guess of 120.
  • Michael Goodson, from Mr. Shepardson’s class, with a guess of 118, and
  • Michael Markwardt, from Mr. Shepardson’s class, with a guess of 120.

Both classes won a tray of apple muffins, streudels and fritteres; an apple pie, apple cider, and half a bushel of apples.
